We really enjoyed being here. Our hotel has been good – it’s like small studio apartments in a complex in a sub-division of Nelson called Monaco. It’s right on the water front and perfectly located.
Anyway, for our last whole say on the South Island, we had a fairly low-key day, driving up to a beach just by Nelson, then lunch on the wharf area. Little bit of shopping in the city (it’s a great place and I recommend it), and back to the apartment to get stuff packed again. The city is great, good shops, free parking everywhere, parking places available, places to eat, good weather, clean, and friendly people.
Next, we set off early to drive to the ferry we will take to Wellington on the North Island. That’ll be fun.
